Icon Design Jobs and Contests

Icons are made to draw attention to the content for the viewer. Without icons, everything would look pretty much the same on your desktop. This would make it difficult to figure out what was in each file. Icons attract the customer to the product, which in turn draws the customer in.

Icon designing jobs require graphic design knowledge as well as knowledge of the software for designing icons. Icons require a lot of knowledge of working with vector based graphic design tools. If you don't have this experience things can be missed and your icon will not look like what you desire.

Listening is another skill that is very important to icon designing. Your client needs to be able to explain what they are looking for in an icon. This includes what the software of product is about and what it needs to do. Really listen to your client. As this is an important element of their business.

Icons are a way of communicating. They are interactive and creative. These are important characteristics to becoming an iconic designer. The use of color, design and structure contributes to how well an icon is designed. Working as iconic designer or performing the work on a freelance basis allows individuals to express themselves through the company's vision.
